Syntonics, or Optometric Phototherapy is the ocular application of specific frequencies of light
to treat a wide range of visual dysfunctions. These include binocular and accommodative deficiencies, visually related learning and memory deficits, oculomotor deficiencies, abnormal pupil reflexes, the rehabilitation of visual dysfunctions that result from traumatic brain injury, headaches, visual field losses, and strabismus (turned eye), and amblyopia (lazy eye). Specifically, Syntonics is used to enlarge a deficient “functional” visual field. Constrictions in this field can affect visual processing, general coordination, and learning.
Syntonics can be used in conjunction with traditional vision therapy techniques to increase vision therapy’s efficiency and success rate or in certain situations, it can be used independently. In the field of optometry, it has been a clinically proven alternative treatment modality for over 80 years. Its mode of action comes primarily from integrating or balancing the autonomic and central nervous systems and their supportive functions in vision.
